        Bald Cypress (Taxodium Distichum) Pierce Lake, Atchafalaya Basin | Earth's Surface

        Taxodium distichum is a deciduous conifer that grows on saturated and seasonally inundated soils of the Southeastern and Gulf Coastal Plains of the United States. It is a large tree, reaching 25-40 m (rarely to 44 m) tall and a trunk diameter of 2-3 m, rarely to 5 m. The bark is gray-brown to red-brown, shallowly vertically fissured, with a stringy texture. The leaves are borne on deciduous branchless that are spirally arranged on the stem, but twisted at the base to lie in two horizontal ranks, 1-2 cm long and 1-2 mm broad.
